Please find the results from the Whittle Pike Race 2 of Inter-club Fell competition
As can be seen, Spectrum won this race and will now be leading the series, accumulatively the points following race 2 are as follows:
Spectrum race 1 (166) + race 2 (216) = 382
Helsby race 1 (187) + race 2 (177) = 364
Tattenhall race 1 (152) + race 2 (55) = 207
So once again less than 20 points separates Helsby from Spectrum so all is still to play for! Considering Spectrum had out 5 more runners than Helsby it appears we held our own due to the added points from the first race, as well as missing a couple of our key runners too.
It’s good for the series that it comes down to the last race to determine the winner!
Disappointingly and due to travel distance Tattenhall were unable to field many runners so we will make sure the choice of races is rectified for next year, possibly moving away from midweek races if need be.
The final race in the series is King Johns Castle, more similar to the Druid than Whittle Pike so could suit the trail runner rather than the out and out fell runner. Hopefully we’ll have a few out to challenge Spectrum again.
Thanks to Tomo and Janet who both sent me a link to some wonderful photos of Whittle Pike so peruse and smile to your hearts consent here:
Good luck to those racing the train this weekend!
